Deep Roots


It's official! Keith and I closed on our very first house yesterday! A cute little house with a red door right across the neighborhood. Until yesterday, owned by our dear friends. We'll move in May 29th, allowing for Stephanie to finish up the school year with the little day-school that currently occupies the basement. And we are super excited. Garden plans, couches, paint colors . . . there's so much to think about!

Ultimately, the house is not about all that though, but steadily following after the Lord as he leads us to plant deep roots in this neighborhood, and faithfully fills up our hearts with love for this city.

"Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce . . . multiply there, and do not decrease. But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare." Jeremiah 29:5-7
